Deities of the Hindu pantheon are to be found in Madhubani art. However, the mythical stories of the heroes and heroines of the epics Ramayana and Mahabharata were also inherited by the folk in Madhubani.

This painting is narrative in character, telling of an important episode in the Mahabharata. In the battlefield, Arjuna is hesitant about attacking his own relatives. There Krishna gives him a sermon, commonly known as Bhagavad Geeta. He, hereby, asks Arjuna to believe in him i.e. Krishna and do his Karma' not thinking about the consequences. Krishna will not forsake anyone who shows faith in him. Here, Krishna is seen as the charioteer who guides Arjuna's chariot all through the battle. The chariot is painted in fancy patterns, driven by dark horses. A parasol, shading the duo adds to the majesty of the vehicle. The blue bodied Krishna looks his regal self, while confusion still reigns on Arjuna's face. Men pointed around the central theme seem superfluous and do not add to the narrative.

The level of customer service provided by you was amazing ! No other Indian Web services, except very few, are giving customers this kind of detailed attention. Thanks Exotic India, I got the book yesterday.

The Nataraja statue arrived fully intact and is absolutely beautiful. I appreciate the great care that was taken in securely wrapping it. I am very satisfied. I have used a few other websites for Indian goods in the past but this experience was so smooth and the shipping so quick that I will be using Exotic India as my first choice and option in the future.
